Mushroom House Cincinnati

This amazing home was built between 1992 and 2006 by an architect Terry Brown and was used as architect's secondary residence till 2008. When Terry Brown bought it in 1989 it was just an ordinary looking house. Then he transformed it into its current look. Brown was a professor of Architecture and Interior Design at the University of Cincinnati. His students helped with the redevelopment of the house.

The architect Leslie Clark who both studied with and worked for Terry Brown summed up the man's architectural ideology this way:
“Terry believed it was an architect’s responsibility to invent solutions for clients that they didn't know were possible, to transform their ideas of what a house could be. Somehow, he made it seem simple to embody the movement of music and nature within a built environment."
